August Stamp Club

This week was my August stamp club and we made a variety of cards.  I had two ladies today and will have six on Thursday.



I love daisies!  My bridesmaids carried them in my wedding back in 1973 so I guess I have loved daisies for a long time!  My husband used to give me daisies for our anniversary each year with a rose for each year we were married.  Needless to say, he stopped that after about a dozen years!!
This card is stamped with So Saffron, a color I don't use much but I don't know why - I love it on this card!  The Daisy Punch was on backorder for a while but it is now back in stock and one of the most popular punches Stampin' Up has had!


This card was totally CASE-d!  It is called a Wiper Card.  When you pull the side panels, the pig (This Little Piggy) pops up from the inside.  The back of the card (which I didn't take a picture of!) is a circle that has another pig on it and the sentiment "says thanks!"   It was a fun card to make and not as difficult as it looks!



Another fun card using a new set from the catalog - Pocketful of Sunshine.  This card is great for slipping a little of money in the pocket for a special someone in your life.

I hope you enjoyed these projects.  If you have any questions, please contact me.

June Stamp Club

Last month in Stamp Club, I had the gals do two pretty labor intensive cards but I think they really like them.

First we did a waterfall card.  These were real popular when I first got involved with Stampin' Up.  At the spring Quarterly, we made one of these cards and I decided that my gals would love making one. I gave them 3 choices.  Surprisingly, the flower one was the most popular!  You can find instructions to make these cards on Splitcoast Stampers.

Next we made a card using a window sheet.  I used the retired DSP for the background.


This is the inside of the card.


Instructions:

After creasing the vanilla card at 4 1/4", put it in the trimmer and remove a 1/2" piece, then remove an additional 1-1/4" piece. The 1-1/4' space will form the window and the 1/2" piece will adhere to the window sheet to create the full sized card.

 Add strips of Post-it-Notes to mask off an area for sponging.

Sponge the background LIGHTLY w/Soft Sky & a little Crumb Cake on the bottom.

Stamp the seaweed with Crumb Cake.

Adhere Window Sheet to card, lining up the right edge with the card.

Adhere ½” strip to the backside of the Window Sheet – again matching up the right edges.

Adhere DSP to left side of the card front (covering up the area you taped the Window Sheet onto the card front. Best adhesive for this is the green Tombow Glue so you will have wiggle room to get everything in order.

Adhere ½” strip of DSP to front of card on right side.

Stamp fish on scrap paper, cut out and adhere to card front.

Stamp fish “bubbles” on inside to match the fish

Our next card was much easier!  I used Seaside Shore to make this card.  I again used the retired By the Shore DSP.  Everyone had different strips do the finished cards were all different.


This was our calendar for July using the wonderful Colorful Seasons.


If you live in the Lake Norman area and would like to join my Stamp Club, we meet on the 3rd Tuesday and Thursday (your choice) at 1:00.  Let me know and I will set a place for you!

More Swaps!

I'm back with a few more card swaps from Quarterly.

This is the last one that I received for the sketch swap.  It is by Phyllis Thurston and uses the wonderful stamp set, Colorful Seasons.  This is such a versatile stamp set!  You can use it for all the seasons since it has snowflakes, beach chairs, fall leaves and spring flowers!


This card is just so cute!  Beth Queen combined This Little Piggy with the Birthday Delivery set!


This card, using Eastern Medallion, is by Connie Gentry.  I love the Lemon Lime with Black!  And check out below - there is a little surprise when you open up the card.

Another great card (by Lisa Pressley) using the Birthday Delivery set.  I'm telling you, you need to order this set!!  There is the stamp set, the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies AND the Birthday Memories DSP as part of the bundle.  The framelits not only fit the stamps, but also some of the images on the designer paper!!


This card uses the Daisy Delight stamp set and was made by Gayle Presnell.

This card was made by Robyn McClanahan and uses the Daisy Delight stamp set.  I love the new Pretty Label Punch!
